Who ... What ... are the BORG?
BORG are 'cybernetically enhanced humanoid drones
organized as an interconnected collective, the decisions
of which are made by a hive mind, which is the
'collective sharing of minds into a single consciousness',
'serving and driving the goals of its entire population'.
BORG 'employ processes in which negative feedback keeps their
system in a particular state, on course towards a particular goal'.
The BORG 'have become a metaphor for any collective force
of like-minded individuals determined to assimilate others
in order to increase the size and power of their collective'. 
For example, the 'reigning education establishment', the
powerful 'composition collective' and the 'indoctrination'
that 'has been blindly accepted as genuine teaching,
instead of being abominated as a vicious counterfeit of it'. 
The BORG warn us that 'resistance is futile' and if we dare to
question them or challenge them, they will 'terminate us'.

BORG, raise your shields and activate the following
